College Senior

Majors: I have not done internships through school

4 College Senior

Majors: I love the AT program. People are great and working with athletes is awesome. Get to know everybody. Very time consuming tho

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: School policies are a joke and often ras will not uphold them. Easy to get away with a lot. Spo cops are the worst, only there to give parking tickets and probably over paid

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Fridays are more chill but plenty of parties. Saturdays are party filled with everyone ending up at roscoes

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Small town with no room for personal growth. Everything stays local. Its a nice area but its not close to any bigger towns

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: All local restaurants. Good food but can get pricey

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus houses are owned independently of the college by landlords who are extremely helpful and willing to help students. The college can be assholes when it comes to deciding who can live off campus. Its cheaper to live off campus but you have to do all the work yourself, no help from the school, to find a place. General maintenance is needed on all houses

3 College Senior

Diversity: The college is fairly diverse as they pride themselves in having international students attending school. Luther has a very open community to sexual orientation.. I mean come on, its a music first school

3 College Senior

Scholarships: They have a good number of scholarships based on academics through high school and your act score. Along with grants and federal aid you can take a good chunk out. However, its about 45k to go here so you'll still end up with quite a bit of loans to pay off

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The Luther bubble does a wonderful job of creating an experience that is not duplicated anywhere else, and many students hold that near to their hearts. The campus's small size allows for plenty of bonding and gives students support and a sense of community and common purpose. The College’s “liberal” bent has less to do with politics and more to do with personal choice. The College allows students to be creative and experiment on their own terms without punishing them for being different sexually, personally, or in terms of viewpoint. In the same way, professors at Luther are not about pushing their own ideas onto other students; they would rather present multiple viewpoints to you and let you make your own decision based on what you’ve learned. The community is also present outside of academics, and everyone is in the same boat at Luther. Despite the existence of a small Greek system, there is no real hierarchy at Luther over who rules the roost. If you’re looking for an Animal House-type experience or plan on living and dying based on the basketball team, you’ll be out of luck at Luther.

Many students love Luther for the simple fact that the bubble allows students to experience all kinds of fun. Academics aside, many students come here for the opportunity to perform in music, play sports, make a difference in student government, or contribute to the campus’s vibrant performing arts society. The workload at Luther and variety of majors allow students to get a great education and forget about it on the weekends, but that doesn’t mean every night has to be a party. Most professors place an emphasis on writing competence at Luther, which means you can expect more term papers than worksheets, especially if you’re in a writing-intensive major. Luther teaches students that although many of the best things can be found on campus, you should still venture into the unknown just to be sure. College is not about ivory towers, old brick buildings, and a false sense of importance; it’s about finding and creating yourself. For many students, there’s no better place to complete that project than Luther.
